Hello Plateau... didn't we just say Goodbye?!
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
It's true... after weighing in last with a loss of 2pounds... I weighed in this week and at first it showed a gain of 4!? FOUR!? What?! Are you even kidding me?! So - I weighed in again the next day and it was down 2pounds - but still not where I was last week!? Ugh?! Just when I thought I had said goodbye to Mr. Plateau... here he is again! He is a persistent little guy but I still have hopes of shaking him off soon! I have my first ever 5K on Sunday and while I will definitely walk parts of it - I am hoping to get a little jogging in this time and maybe by next year, I will be able to run the whole thing?! That's the goal anyway... I am battling what I suspect may be a shin splint - but I am not sure - it's not terribly painful - just annoying... so I am trying to balance rest with training - not an easy combo for me?!
I have been LOVING the Spring (almost summer-like) weather we have had the past few days! Temps in the high 70s to mid 80s... gorgeous sunshine, and blue skies, flowers and trees starting to be in bloom...
I had set my Reward for hitting that 75 pounds gone mark - but my sis didn't want to wait after hearing a few testimonies about the benefits of using a heart rate monitor so we went out today to purchase one...
We just got a cheap one to start and I am off to workout and see how it works! While we were there... I decided that I should have a pair of shorts for this nicer weather that are not my workout clothes - but I didn't want to spend much $$$ on clothes... I found this nice little pair for $10!
Not too bad... AND - notice - they are a size 12!!! Yay!
Spark On and Happy Spring!!!
